For such little animals they seem to take a lot of time to dress! I have finished knitting three little pair of trousers and I sweater. The sweater features colour work and is knitted in the round. Only two more sweaters to knit. I reckon that will take another week.
I am well on the way with my embroidered piece and it is coming together nicely. I decided to use the stylised shape of an insect and then fill in the sections with flowers. I first selected my colour palette and then stitched a sample of the stitches I wanted to use. This is for a class called "Exploring more stitches" . I choose a limited number of stitches that you can chance the appearance of by varying the thickness of thread, direction of the stitching and changing the tension on the thread. I also limited myself to using DMC stranded cottons.
Since realising that I stitch much the same way I draw it has given me the freedom to use my thread much like a pencil. I'm even experimenting with replicating how I would paint this piece as well.
